Assuming that you operating system is Windows XP, or Vista, Windows 7 you don't need a driver for this cd rom; these drivers are embedded in the operating system. You just have to connect the cd rom at your motherboard. In case of not working there has to be a problem somewhere else. Post me back what exactly is your problem in order to help you to solve it.

many problems arises when we speak bout unredable roms, or rom's that sometimes read. might be problem with weak lense, or a weak motor, or a bad board. then only thing u can do is try to clean ur lense with some spirit, or a CD lense cleaner.
if it still didnt work then it looks like u goota take it to an expert.
Sounds like a case of jumper settings. If the CD-RW was installed as secondary IDE to an existing hard drive which is the Master, pls set jumper to SL. They are located at the rear of the CD unit between the IDE connector and the audio out.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
is your hard drive the master on the primary cable? You shouldn't need a digital audio cable unless you want digital audio. Are you using Nero software witht he drive? may have to re-install the software, or better, uninstall it, clear the registry with CCleaner (free download on the web) and then try a fresh install.
People hate going over the basics but gotta ask:
-Have you tried cleaning your read/write heads using a commercial cleaner?
-Do you have any problems reading CDs?
-What Brand of CDs are you using? If you're using the cheapies you should try a few quality brands such as HP or Fugi.
-Have you checked the drives manufacturers specifications for blank disks?
-What recording speed are you using? Try setting it lower and see if that has any effect.
-How much reading and writing have you done with this drive? They do wear out and CD only R/W drives have a history of not lasting long.
-Have you tried running a diagnostic on your drive? Here is a link to the Sony CD/DVD diagnostic tool. Meant for Sony drives but I have used this successfully on other drives - http://sony.storagesupport.com/cdrw/diagnostics.htm#dwn
